A special inverse problem is formulated in which the shape of the mean streamline and the circumferential thickness distribution of the profile are given. On the basis of the series expansion method on a selected streamline, in quasi-three-dimensional aerodynamic design, the blade profile thickness is automatically fulfilled by computer. Six radial sections of a turbine blade are designed by this method.
